Cat update for week ending August 17

Saturday means Caturday, checking in with the feral cats we care for.

Two cats sleeping inside the cat house shelter:

The alien gray cat and Poppy; she just wandered off, and let the gray cat finish eating:

Four cats inside; I also saw Spud in the feeder again at this time. It’s rare to see all five cats, but I’m glad when I do; it’s nice to confirm that they’re all still alive:

Those aren’t cats: two raccoons inside:

The alien gray cat arrives, followed by the alien orange cat:

Both are probably pet cats of neighbors. We’ve named the orange cat Pumpkin, but haven’t named the gray cat (which has a collar, so is definitely a pet). Since he looks like an outdoor edition of our cat Paladin, maybe we should call him Paladout? 😉

The gray cat arrives when one of our ferals is sitting next to the deck; they seem to be somewhat getting used to each other:

Poppy has been spending several hours each night sleeping in the shelter, which makes me happy; she was a very good mother to her kittens, and deserves a comfortable retirement:

  2. Great cat photos this week. My favorite is the belly shot of the two sleepy cats. Beautiful markings.
